Asheville Treetops Adventure Park

ATAP is a challenge course in the trees that has 77 unique climbing, rolling, walking, jumping, swinging, and rappelling challenges anchored to over 30 trees and towering poles tucked into a wooded park. There are 7 different adventure trails ranging from beginner to challenging levels. There are several elements that are representative of the activities you can do in North Carolina including a sky kayak, a parkway tunnel, a snowboard in the sky, swinging hula hoops, bumper boats and a zip hang glider, all in the trees that make this a “Truly Asheville Adventure.”

We use a new technology called “smart belays” that, when used properly, are designed to assure Park Guests are attached to safety systems at all times and cannot detach from the system until they have completed the aerial trail and are back on the ground. Guests can explore freely knowing the safety system monitors their attachments and is designed to not allow accidental unclipping from the safety points. It is an active adventure that incorporates physical fitness and personal accomplishment.

  • escorts and/or monitors needed for younger ages
  • 2 hours of adventure
  • max weight of Guest is 265 lbs.

Team Building Low Ropes Facilitated Programs

ACA offers numerous opportunities for a wide range of team building experiences. Our highly skilled facilitators design fun and competitive programs utilizing our Low Ropes Elements and Initiatives, our Treetops Adventure Park aerial challenge course and our Tree Quest tree climbing.

Our low ropes facilitated programs with experienced instructors focuses on active interactions designed for guests to step outside of their typical comfort zones. We highlight the potential strengths of team task completion and the challenges of processes such as communication, group decision making, and task sharing/delegation. Our program is regularly described as fun, engaging, challenging, sometimes frustrating, thought provoking, and personally enlightening. The group will walk away knowing more about themselves and each other and hopefully shed light on some ideas the team can develop and implement long term.


Recreational tree climbing is a fun adventure activity where Guests use specialized gear and techniques to climb on one of our stately oak trees using a rope without negatively affecting the tree. Climbers “inch worm” their way up one of our eight climbs that range in height.

My son and I went ziplining, we did the short course. Though we were both terrified - it was extremely exhilarating! Brandon and Briggs were awesome instructors, and were also patient with me with each line as I was not able to get the courage to lift my feet to go 😳(I was too scared). Highly recommend visiting!
